the long search

When you have nowhere to go, go back to yourself.

At the end....

It was exactly eight weeks ago that I last met DK. In a hospital which was so very quiet. That was August 17, my birthday.



DK died today.



I very well knew he was going to lose this battle against cancer. But I did not grieve because DK was a fighter to the core. And, he went down fighting without ever regretting what he had lost.



In my short association with him, I had realized that one must always be ready to put one's hands up when a fight beckons. At the end, that's going to define the journey.

memento mori.
I'm sorry for your loss and for all those whose lives DK touched. When (my friend) M was losing ground to cancer, her fight taught me the value of life. It's the parting gift that nobody can make me part with.

Celebrate DK, for he was a fighter, as you say, to the very core.
Let DK's memory become your strength today.

Grieve not for this loss, for i'm sure DK wouldn't have wanted to see you sad.


My condolences.

Certainly not. My association with DK was short but I had grown deep respect for the man.

Thanks. Welcome.
